“We ask for God’s spirit to be strong in children,” he said.

Just more than a week after a Havelock firefighter went into a burning home to rescue a 2-year-old child, the Rev. Jim Daub, of St. Paul Lutheran Church and the emergency services chaplain for city police and fire, said a special prayer for firefighters and police officers as well as those in the military and military families.

“When we run the other way, they run toward the problem and toward the danger,” he said.

He prayed for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for others.

“We are part of this great nation,” he said. “And when you have a great nation, you have many who have sacrificed themselves for it.”

The service concluded with the congregation joining in song, “To God Be the Glory.”
